Good Day Gents,


Had quite a surprise yesterday, had the local Post Man knock on the door and had me sign for a package ? I looked at the address and had completely forgotten that i had special ordered this Wacker 7/8 Jungmeister many, many, many months ago. At the time I was looking they were out of stock so I put my name on a list with Bettina and then a few months later the razor was ready but I wanted different scales so another several months went by as the scales I wanted for the 7/8 were not being polished at that time, well long story short after like 6 months and forgetting I had paid my razor arrived.

Jamie,

Could have had it alot sooner but wanted streaked horn scales and after Bettina with Wacker sent me lots of scales to look at i finally decided on the ones that are on it and then I had to wait even longer as they were working on 6/8 razors at the time and she had no idea when it would be ready, i will have to say dealing directly with Wacker has been a pleasure.

Scale selection was pretty tough as the pics the gal from Wacker sent were unpolished scales and I had to pick from these, and I choose the set marked red:

I have one other Wacker and if this one shaves as well as the Chevalier I will be happy.

I have a Chevalier and for along time I didn't think I liked it. Over time I got pretty decent honing my own razors. Took the Chevalier out of storage honed it with my Jnat and I love it. I've had several razor I didn't think where that great of shavers and came back to them down the road and have a completely different opinion of them now. Your skin type and how a razor is honed makes all the difference in the world and the way it's polished. Like diamond paste people use to touch up blades or finish honing with it. I can't stand it ! Gives a sharp but very harsh edge edge. I'm rambling. Ha ha. Great razors ! In joy.
